A unique opportunity to discover the beautiful park of the Villa La Babina which looks majestic in the countryside at the beginning of the village of Sasso Morelli in the Imola plain, a village renovated by the architect Cosimo Morelli at the end of the eighteenth century.
The current plant, of a landscaped type, presents the characteristics of the nineteenth-century parks of the noble residences of the Bolognese plain. It looks like an island of green that emerges in the plain and is made up of some typical elements: a fifth of perimeter green that surrounds the buildings and large lawn areas.
It is characterized by being still today inserted in the original rural context, with which it maintains that landscape unity that unfortunately has been lost in many cases.
